Bronx Hearing and Vision Loss Lawyer

Suffering from hearing or vision loss, even temporarily, can be devastating, especially if you lost your senses due to a work-related accident. In addition to the expensive medical bills, you may no longer be able to perform your work duties.

If you suffered from hearing or vision loss while working, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. Handling these claims on your own can be troublesome and complex for those without prior experience, especially when you are already struggling with a crushing injury.

The right Bronx hearing and vision loss lawyer can help ensure you receive the compensation that you may be entitled to. Contact one of our lawyers at Shulman Hill to discuss your case today.

Vision Loss and Blindness

If any part of the eye gets damaged or injured while you are working, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation. Whether your sight gradually gets worse or you have different levels of blindness, there are varying degrees to which you may be entitled to compensation. A flying object or particles may hit your eye, resulting in damage. In some cases, exposure to bright light on the worksite without protective eyewear could also cause vision loss. In any of these cases, workers’ compensation benefits may be available to you.

Eye injuries are common workplace injuries that can sometimes be permanent. A worker may suffer from drastic loss of vision in the process and become blind. Vision loss can happen in Bronx worksites due to:

  • Exposure to chemicals
  • Radiation or dangerous light exposure
  • Dust particles or debris that gets into the eye, including metal or glass

While eye injuries can happen to any worker at any time, there are a few jobs in the Bronx that are more likely to suffer vision loss. These include carpenters, mechanics, welders, plumbers, construction workers, and manufacturing workers.

Bronx Hearing Loss

All companies who operate in the Bronx need to comply with federal guidelines for safe noise exposure. These are put in place to protect those who work for the company and anyone visiting the job site. Workers should have access to safety earmuffs to protect their hearing.

When a company, contractor, or property owner violates the guidelines, hearing loss can occur. Although some workers are aware of the rules, they may not be able to quantify the exact decibel level of the noise. In much the same way, the employer may not be aware of how loud the worksite is and allow the noise to continue. No matter the cause, excessive noise can be damaging to your hearing and have lasting effects.

Various tools on a construction site and in factories can quickly get loud and cause hearing damage. If you have hearing loss that has slowly occurred over time at your workplace, or if you have sudden hearing loss due to an accident, contact a Bronx hearing and vision loss attorney for assistance.

Common Causes of Hearing and Vision Loss in the Bronx

There are several main reasons why hearing and vision loss may happen at work in the Bronx. Some of the most common include:

  • Work injuries. Many hearing and vision loss cases originate from workplace conditions. Workers need to look out for exposure to loud noises and flying objects that could cause harm.
  • Car accidents. Injuries resulting from a car crash, such as traumatic brain injury or concussion, whiplash, and flying glass can all cause loss of hearing and/or vision.
  • Defective products. There are various cases of defective products causing hearing or vision loss: a defective airbag can spray shrapnel into your eyes, defects in contact lenses can lead to vision loss, and earplugs may fail to properly block out noise.

Compensation For a Bronx Hearing Or Vision Loss Injury

If you received medical treatment for your hearing or vision injury, you likely have medical bills piling up. Other financial losses may include any wages you lose if you are unable to return to work due to the injury, whether temporarily or permanently. If you were injured while working, these losses can likely be covered through workers’ compensation.

If you were injured outside of work, or if a party other than your employer caused your workplace accident, you may be able to pursue additional compensation by filing a personal injury lawsuit. In addition to medical expenses and lost wages, a lawsuit may result in compensation for your pain and suffering.

Why You Should Hire a Bronx Hearing and Vision Loss Lawyer

An experienced vision and hearing loss attorney can help investigate the cause of your injury and collect evidence showing why you may qualify for compensation.

If your claim for workers’ compensation benefits is denied, or if you receive a low settlement offer from an insurance company in response to your personal injury lawsuit, a hearing and vision loss lawyer can be your greatest asset. One of Shulman & Hill’s Bronx attorneys can help you navigate challenges from insurers and negotiate on your behalf for fair compensation.
